i am quite inexperienced with hardware. i am a programmer and have been only a programmer for years. but in search of an uber rig with a price that wont trump the cost of my house, i was advised to build my own
and i was wondering if the setup i have in mind would be legit for heavy multimedia use. and if the parts would work correctly together

Approximate Purchase Date: whenever i have the money

Budget Range: 1000-1500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, internet, editing pictures/video

Preferred Website for Parts: newegg.com


Parts Preferences: Antec Lanboy air Yellow Black / Yellow Computer Modular Case, ATX form factor in general

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200

Additional Comments: all i need to know is if the parts i have selected here will work together/or are good for gaming and video editing.

specs
EVGA GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) SuperClocked 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support

Everything looks pretty good for what you want to do. I would just recommend a good SSD to increase system responsiveness but that is about all Ive got
